Exposed





Photograpy: Dylana Suarez

Wearing a burgundy Rory Beca Spring '11 blouse.

Here I am photographed by my wonderful and totally multitalented sister Dylana. Gaahh I cannot believe she can simply pick up a camera any time, any place and create such beautiful photographs...with absolutely no training. And she makes it so easy on me. She tells me to just "stand here...and move around a little." Being the good little sister that I am, I do what I am told, and voila... she creates art in less than 5 minutes. I'm shocked at their vulnerability and rawness. Completely natural and ethereal. Just the way I like them.

love the second photo such a great feeling and vulnerable whilst still strong in some way. such a great image

♥Run With Fashion♥ said...

Love the first pic.
So pretty
&
my twin sister loves the last picture :)

Camille said...

i'm not surprised at all, actually. having a twin sister, i know that the person who takes the best photos of me - and vice versa - is the person closest to me, the one who picks up on the nuances and subtleties of my facial expressions and movements, and who knows just when to press "click"! that said, these photos are indeed breathtaking, but that's probably also because your sister seems like a creative, open-minded lady with a natural talent. how lovely is that? :)

annika sch. said...

ohhh, thank you.
you header photo is so good!
where do you have buy the ring at the last photo..at the left hand?

i follow you now. :)

Kathleen Carla. said...

Dylana's photography is truly amazing & as you said, raw yet hauntingly beautiful. I adore every pose and shot, it's amazing how you can create such artistic and vulnerable photos with a simple red blouse and rings..that's when you know you're so talented. You and your sis will always be my most fave&inspirational style icons ;).

<3, Kathleen.

Ooh, nice blouse! These photos are indeed gorgeous... photo shoots with my sister always involve her asking how to use my camera and then telling me to pose awkwardly, haha :)

Burgandy! I'm beginning to fall for the color. This top is a gorgeous shade of it, it would be really pretty as nail polish! Ooh with brown leather wedges and that color as toe polish. A girl can dream...

Dylana must be a very talented girl to photograph pictures like this. I guess she is addicted to photography as well as you who is very much addicted to tailored suits and black suits.
